This is a good resource with an extensive list of food companies, food trade associations, and consumer groups. It gives a lot of information both on getting the best deals in the grocery store and shopping for your best health. It also has information on nutritional supplements and reviews popular diets. There is a chapter devoted entirely to wine. This book does have some editing problems (typos,grammar inconsistencies, etc.), but usually the meaning can be inferred.
